Cherkassy Monkeys are negotiating with Diamantopoulos
Cherkassy Monkeys of Ukraine are currently negotiating with greek wing player Georgios Diamantopoulos. Diamantopoulos was considered to be one the best talents of his generations but due to bad choices his career went downhill. It seems to be picking up now after a good year with Kolossos Rhodes in the A1 league in Greece.
Cherkassy offered 350.000 dollars per year to Diamantopoulos but at the last minute his agent changed his mind and asked for a higher amount. The administration of the team did not respond with a higher offer so it remains to be seen what will happen.
Diamantopoulos averaged 14.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18 games of the A1 greek league last season.
